Freight shipping costs: plan with efficiency and ease
How much does freight shipping cost?
Freight shipping prices are based on a number of factors, like the origin and destination, the cargo you have and the date you intend to ship. With our monthly fixed rates, we give you more control over this process by letting you book quotes in advance, to help avoid peak seasons, sudden disruptions and meet the demands of your customers.
Monthly fixed rates on the Twill platform
Twill is the only logistics platform where you see monthly fixed rates for yourself as you book and can use them straight away. There’s no need to request a quote or provide loads of information – it’s simple and guarantees that you don’t get any surprise costs down the line. Just search your route, select monthly fixed rates and see your options before confirming.
What you need to consider while booking
Our monthly fixed rates cover a calendar month. For example, 1st July – 31st July. If you select a fixed rate on the 8th July it is valid until the 31st July.
Commit before the 15th
Lock in this month’s fixed rate by the 15th of the month and you won’t pay more, so you can always get the best price for your business and can manage your supply chain effectively.
Fixed rate expiry
After selecting a monthly fixed rate for your booking, you will not be able to go back and select a daily price until the expiry of the fixed rate.

Fixed rates only include inland transportation – with the ability to add Value Protect and Customs Services.
